    Windows 10 Home - paths from encrypted drive popping up in run menu


    I've got an truecrypt partition with what we'll call some unflattering files. Nothing illegal or immoral, but nothing you want girlfriends or family members to find either.

    I've got recently used files and all that turned off, but there's one place they're still popping up. If I open the run menu and type the letter "r," I'm greeted with a list of file paths whose existence I'd prefer Windows not advertise in any way ("R:" is where I mount the tc volume.)

    My assumption is that it's related to Windows indexing, but none of the elements to manage indexing options that my google queries are suggesting seem to exist on my PC, so I'm guessing they only apply to Windows 10 Pro? At this point I'd settle for deleting the index entirely and disabling it, assuming the index is actually the problem. In any event, pic related.

    Edit: So I've disabled the Windows Search service and deleted the Windows.edb file, which I understand is the index. Rebooted, and it's still showing up. I bounced over to my admin account, and it's not happening there. So it's on a per-user basis. Presumably in one of the AppData directories.

    Edit2: Solved the problem by disabling autocomplete and deleted autocomplete history in the Content tab in Internet Explorer settings. Ridiculous.

    :)

  2. Bitlocker Issues

    There is no way to permanent decrypt if you have Win10 Home, you may try using another PC which was Pro Edition.

    If there is no other path then the last choice was downgrade your windows back to Windows 7 where you encrypt it.

    Device Encryption, locked my ISCSI virtual drive, now it won't unlock it.

    So, I connected my dell venue 11 pro, to my iscsi virtual drive that is on my home windows server. I set it up, then, windows said that it needed to restart , i don't remember what it said, but i had to go and when i came back the laptop somehow encrypted
    itself and the network drive on its own . After a little while I found i could turn off the encryption by going into settings , about , then turned off device encryption. It did after some time, unlock the C: drive but it didnt unlock the iscsi virtual drive.
    Whenever I connect to the drive , it says: The Bitlocker encryption on this drive isn't compatable with your version of windows. Try opening the drive using a new version of windows. When I try to right click the drive and hit unlock it says application
    not found. The laptop is running windows 10 Home. Also the other computer connected to the iscsi is running windows 10 Home and the server is running windows server 2012 r2 standard. Any ideas you have would help.
